In Another Reality


Others seek my
intervention, miss
me when i'm gone &
need me to sign a form.

I stayed in school, made the
grade, my mantel's heavy w/
trophies, & i
own a mantel.

A ruffled friend needs my
blessing, the
show can't start 'till i arrive, &
a distraught child demands

cheering up from
nobody
else but me.

In another reality
we all feel, hear & see
just how much worse it all could be.

Poem of the Day

poet William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
